tv Late Night With Seth Meyers NBC October 12, 2017 12:37am-1:38am PDT
♪ >> announcer: from 30 rockefeller plaza in new york, it's "late night with seth meyers." tonight -- kathy bates, from "killing gunther" actor and comedian, taran killam, music from japandroids, featuring the 8g band with joe russo. ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening. this is "late night." how is everyone doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] that is fantastic to hear. before we get started, yesterday eminem released a free style rap video. did anybody see that? did anybody see that? yeah. [ cheers and applause ] in which he took on a number of political and social issues and ended the video by calling on
any of his fans who still support donald trump to decide between trump and himself. take a look. >> and any fan of mine who's a supporter of his, i'm drawing in the sand a line you're either for or against and if you can't decide who you like more and you're split on who you should stand beside, i'll do it for you with this. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: powerful stuff. powerful stuff. [ applause ] and i was inspired by that so tonight i say to any fans of this show who are also big fans of donald trump, it's time to make a decision, guys. get off the fence. [ cheers and applause ] do you support him or do you support this show that constantly mocks and denigrates everything about him? i know it's a tough call.
but the time has come to make a decision. now, i'm not much of a rapper, but here it goes. [ cheers and applause ] my name is seth and i'm here to say if you like trump then go away. [ cheers and applause ] let's get to the news, everyone. that's going to cost us. [ laughter ] president trump this morning tweeted, quote, "with all the fake news coming out of nbc and the networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their license?" you're coming after nbc? they didn't take our license after that monkey hospital show, they're not going to take it for you. [ laughter ] president trump said today, quote, "it's frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write and people should look into it." hey man, are you having trouble reading the first amendment? [ light laughter ]
how about if we put it in red? oh, i know. how 'bout in peach? yeah, impeach. impeach is definitely the way to go. [ cheers and applause ] lindsay lohan today defended movie producer harvey weinstein amid allegations of sexual harassment saying that she feels very bad for him and she doesn't think it's right what's going on. at which point her friend said, lindsay that's a manatee. [ laughter ] a florida man who was arrested for robbing a bank this week reported search the phrase, "how to rob a bank" on google beforehand. but luckily he's got a plan. [ laughter ] taylor swift announced she's launching a new app called "the swift life" that will feature taymojis which are emojis that look like her, and they have one thing in common, they're all surprised.
[ laughter ] russian president vladimir putin received a puppy today from the president of turkmenistan as a belated birthday gift and he sent back a pretty shocking thank you card. [ audience groans ] [ light laughter ] it is my birthday. i ate the puppy. [ laughter ] i send back puppy bones. [ light laughter ] i'm not monster. i don't eat bone. [ laughter ] i'll win 'em -- i'll win 'em over with puppy bones. iceland, this week, became the smallest country to ever qualify for the world cup and while they may be the smallest country they still have the longest roster. [ light laughter ] and finally apple is reportedly
designing an iphone with a foldable display. we're getting ready to fold too, said blackberry. ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] she is the star of the new series on netflix, "disjointed," the always wonderful kathy bates is here, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] he's a dear friend of ours. he's also the writer, director, and star of the action comedy "killing gunther" taran killam is back on the show. [ cheers and applause ] and music from one of my favorite bands, vancouver rock duo, japandroids are here tonight. [ cheers and applause ] so excited to have them in the studio. before we get to all of that. president trump is now fighting with members of his own party who think he's dangerous, unstable, and a threat to national security and on top of that he's threatening media outlets that report on him. for more on this it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: trump has fallen short repeatedly on his signature
initiatives from the border wall to repealing obamacare so now he's trying to convince people he's succeeding by reciting random numbers about the economy. numbers he himself derided as a candidate. trump told forbes in an interview, "we're accomplishing a lot. your stock market is at an all time high, your jobs, your unemployment is at the lowest point in almost 17 years." your stock market? your jobs? he sounds like a terrible russian spy who forgot he was undercover. [ light laughter ] your flag is very beautiful. i mean our flag. the flag of the uniting states. scars and spripes. [ light laughter ] but trump's obsession with stock market numbers hasn't helped him much. so now he's trying to bounce back with what he thinks is surefire crowd pleaser, tax cuts. now, even the most positive polls have found public opinion very split with at most 48% of respondents saying they approve of trump's tax plan. but when you're as desperate for
good news as trump is you'll take 48%. and on tuesday he tried to claim the plan was a massive hit. >> the people of this country want tax cuts. they want lower taxes. we're the highest taxed nation in the world. people want to see tax cuts, they want to see major reductions in their taxes and they want to see tax reform. i will tell you that it's become very, very popular. >> seth: i'm sorry, but something cannot be very popular if it only has 48% approval unless it stars johnny knoxville. now, incidentally the rotten tomatoes critics consensus for "jackass" somehow perfectly describes the trump administration. there's a good chance you'll be laughing hysterically at one stunt, but getting grossed out by the next one. [ cheers and applause ] now, you might have noticed in that clip that trump repeated his line that we are the highest taxed nation in the world, which isn't even close to true. the u.s. has a higher corporate tax rate than other countries, but when it comes to overall taxes we rank 32nd and overall
is an important distinction. as in, the stock market under trump is doing well, but overall we're still [ bleep ]. a reporter tried to fact check trump's highest taxed nation claim with whitehouse press secretary, sarah huckabee sanders on tuesday, but predictably got nowhere. >> the president repeated this claim in the oval office today saying we're the highest taxed nation in the world. why does the president keep saying this? it's not true overall. >> we are the highest taxed corporate tax in the developed economy. that's a fact. >> but that's not what the president said. >> that's what he's -- that's what he's talking about. we are the highest corporate taxed country in the developed economies across the globe. >> sarah, so that's accurate, but the president keeps repeating this claim that we're the highest taxed nation. >> and that's -- we are the highest taxed corporate nation. >> but that's not what he said. he said, we're the highest taxed nation in the world. >> the highest taxed corporate nation. it seems pretty consistent to me. >> seth: trying to get the truth out of sarah huckabee sanders is like trying to get blood from
mike pence. you know his veins are just full of whiteout. [ laughter ] but while he continues to push a tax cut plan that would disproportionately benefit the wealthy, trump also continues to insist, despite reality, that he is providing voters what he repeatedly promised on the campaign trail, great healthcare that would be much cheaper than what we currently have. on tuesday he claimed he was preparing a new executive order that would solve many of the problems in healthcare and as has been the case so often before he refused to provide any actual details. >> i'll also be signing something probably this week which is going to go a long way to take care of many of the people that have been so badly hurt on healthcare and they'll be able to buy, they'll be able to cross state lines, and they will get great competitive healthcare and it will cost the united states nothing. >> seth: when someone tells you their product will cost nothing, that's a good sign to steer clear. when you see a bucket that says free clams, you don't eat those
clams. [ light laughter ] so while -- [ cheers and applause ] while trump struggles to advance his domestic agenda, he's also been locked in a feud with members of his own party. in particular, tennessee senator bob corker, a republican, who warned on sunday that trump's reckless threats towards other countries could lead the nation on the path to world war iii. trump hit back at corker yesterday, not with a cogent argument, but with a new nickname. tweeting, "the failing 'new york times' set liddle bob corker up by recording his conversation. was made to sound a fool and that's what i am dealing with." that's what i'm dealing with? hey, man, you're the leader of the free world. stop talking like a stressed out burger king manager. [ laughter and applause ] i got two guys out today, i'm working the drive-thru myself, plus the mouse is back so, yeah, that's what i'm dealing with. [ cheers and applause ] now, corker's warning about trump is urgent and necessary
but the most revealing thing he said was not about trump it was actually about the republican party as a whole. corker told the "the new york times" that the people around trump as well as his fellow republican senators know and agree that trump is unfit for office. corker told the times, "i know for a fact that every single day at the white house it's a situation of trying to contain him. the vast majority of our caucus understands what we're dealing with here. of course they understand the volatility that we're dealing with and the tremendous amount of work that it takes by people around him to keep him in the middle of the road." that sounds less like he's talking about a president and more like the safety talk to the workers who got kong into that broadway theater. [ light laughter ] and of course it's not just corker who has questioned trump's fitness for office. last week it was reported that secretary of state rex tillerson had privately called trump a moron and yesterday trump shot back in an interview. when asked about the tillerson report trump said, "i think it's fake news, but if he did that i guess we'll have to compare iq tests and i can tell you who is going to win." oh. that is a bummer, though because the first question is who would
win an iq test and the answer is tillerson. [ laughter ] in fact, i'm willing to bet any rex would beat you in an iq test and most rex's are dogs. [ laughter and applause ] and if you're wondering what happened in that meeting that led tillerson calling trump a moron, nbc reported today that trump told national security advisers that he wants nearly ten times the number of nuclear weapons held in the current stockpile. you don't need ten times the nuclear weapons. what we have is enough. trump is the kind of guy who would get two orders of all you can eat pancakes. alright, that's all i can eat. i'll take my next order. and this will not shock you, trump was furious at the report about his nuke comments and even threatened to revoke nbc's broadcast license on twitter. later in the oval office he lamented the fact that the united states has a free press. >> general mattis put out a statement or is putting out a statement saying that that was fake news, that it was just mentioned that way and it's
frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write and people should look into it. >> seth: people should look into it? not only is he a wanna be dictator he's a lazy wanna be dictator. it's not that hard to look into it. it's literally the first amendment. even rex the dog is like it's one sentence, dude. [ laughter and applause ] but iq tests aside, let's step back and think about this, a republican senator is admitting that virtually his entire party knows the president's unstable and dangerous and has essentially done nothing about it. if this is what republicans really believe then at the very least they have to exercise some restraint over trump and reign him in if not remove him from office and yet, many republicans are doing the opposite. congressman mark meadows, chairman of the hardline freedom caucus, seemed to accidently admit that he and his colleagues were being cowardly when he was asked about those comments from corker who plans to retire at the end of his term. meadows said of corker, "it's easy to be bold when you're not coming back."
so you all know he's a bad guy, but you don't want to tell the rest of us. do you work in congress or on the board of the weinstein company? [ audience groans ] [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] trump's whitehouse, meanwhile, has been struggling to mount a convincing defense of trump's behavior and in particular his reckless threats toward north korea. sander shot back at corker although i'm not sure her argument was all that persuasive. >> senator corker is certainly entitled to his own opinion, but he's not entitled to his own facts. the fact is this president has been an incredibly strong leader on foreign policy and national security. >> seth: that's not a fact that's an opinion. [ light laughter ] you're entitled to your own opinions, but not your own dictionaries. if republicans genuinely -- [ scattered applause ] genuinely believe that the president is unstable and dangerous, then giving interviews isn't enough. they have to actually do something about it by exercising some oversight or removing him
from office and if you don't know how that works. >> people should look into it. [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." [ cheers and applause ] we'll be right back with kathy bates everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks" be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube. who lived in a shoe. she had so many children she had to buy lots of groceries. while she was shopping for organic fruits and veggies, burglars broke into her shoe. they stole her kids' mountain bikes and tablets along with her new juice press. luckily the geico insurance agency had helped her with homeowners insurance. she got full replacement on the stolen goods and started a mountain bike juice delivery service. call geico and see how affordable homeowners insurance can be.

[ cheers and applause ] thanks for being here. our first guest tonight is an oscar, golden globe and emmy winning actress you know from films like "misery" and "primary colors" as well as shows like "american horror story." she stars in "disjointed," which is streaming on netflix, let's take a look. >> travis, pull up a chair. you're in too. >> uh, no, i'm not. all right? i'm going to spend my time running our business and you're not going to goad me into playing like you usually do. >> i see. one quick question, bock! [ laughter ] >> the chicken thing -- mom, you're a grown-up.
>> bock! [ laughter ] >> you're a revered political activist. >> aw, bock, bock! [ laughter ] >> seth: please welcome back to the show, our friend, kathy bates, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ >> seth: welcome back! >> hello. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so happy to have you here. >> how are you? >> seth: congratulations on the show, you have -- ten episodes are available on netflix now, another ten in january. >> yep. >> seth: you run a weed dispensary on the show. >> yeah. [ light laughter ] >> seth: now, you don't need -- you don't need to smoke marijuana to enjoy the show, but would you -- do you think it would help? [ laughter ] >> that's a loaded question! >> seth: yeah. >> well, all i can tell you is
that when i read the scripts, i'm stoned. >> seth: okay. [ laughter and applause ] >> um -- and um -- i just wish i had a seatbelt in bed. >> seth: oh, you laugh so hard? >> i laugh so hard, i'm afraid to get up. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] that is -- i feel like you're living the actors dream of just lying in bed, stoned, reading a script. that is -- >> isn't that fantastic? >> seth: you -- things have broken right for you. >> yeah, they really have. >> seth: that is perfect. >> and it's research! >> seth: yeah! you're actually working when you're doing that. >> i really am. it's fantastic. >> seth: that's so exciting. >> yeah. >> seth: what do you -- now, what about -- you smoke a lot on the show, but obviously that's not marijuana, what are you smoking there? >> no, no, no, i refuse to smoke the joints they pack on the show 'cause it's this horrendous mix of some kind of herbal stuff that they -- >> seth: yeah. >> they have to sit there and cram it into those -- you know, those -- those things. >> seth: yeah, that's no good. >> and things come out in your mouth. and so i said, "i'm just going to do a vape." >> seth: okay. oh, so you're vaping? [ laughter ] yeah. >> yeah, but i'm not vaping real stuff -- >> seth: yeah.
>> i'm vaping like apricot things -- >> seth: oh, that's nice. >> you know, but i never inhale. >> seth: oh, that's good. you wait 'til you're home. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] what about -- now, in the dispensary, there are all the things, you know, this is a fictional dispensary, but all the things they sell at real dispensaries -- >> yeah. >> seth: -- including edibles. have you in your life experienced edibles? >> when i'm desperate. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] sure. >> yeah, but the thing about edibles is you really want it to kick in. >> seth: yeah. >> yeah and it's just sort of like a stealth bomber. >> seth: yeah. >> you know? it'll kick in maybe four, five hours later and you're never sure when. >> seth: yeah. it's almost like your friend who -- was supposed to bring weed and is five hours late. [ laughter ] 'cause you just -- yeah, there we go! [ laughter and applause ] >> there we go! >> seth: the only problem i have -- here's my problem with edibles, is i also like what the edible is, so sometimes i -- i have one time had a problem where i just also like gummy bears. >> oh yeah, okay, i can't
stand -- >> seth: but i ate too many gummy bears -- >> how many? >> seth: well, i mean four, but if they're edibles, that's not -- that's too many. >> yeah, well sometimes i just want chocolate. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and that's the only thing i have there because i don't want to eat chocolate really. i don't go buy chocolate. >> seth: yeah. >> but if i'm at dr. dina's who are a kind of cannabis consultant. >> seth: uh-huh. >> she has chocolate, you know, like chocolate bars. >> seth: yeah. >> and i just, sometimes on a sunday, i get desperate. >> seth: yeah! [ light laughter ] >> and i'll have to have, you know, a corner of that and it's -- it's deadly. >> seth: it's deadly -- it's also deadly and problematic because you -- you know, you eat a little and you get stoned and then you want more chocolate. [ light laughter ] >> oh, i never thought about it that way! [ laughter ] that explains why there's none left in the morning. [ laughter ] >> seth: you -- you shot a youtube show with one of my favorite people and i'm so glad to see you two are finally collaborating because this was a pairing that i think everybody has been waiting for a long time, which is kathy bates and snoop dogg. [ cheers and applause ]
how -- how did you enjoy your time with snoop dogg? >> oh, he is such a lovely man! >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] he really is. >> he is such a -- he really is a lovely man. he really is. and -- and you know, he smokes these blunts, they're -- they're really -- they're -- they're huge! >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and my chair was set kind of far away from him and i said, "no, no, no, let's -- let's get closer!" [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and it just -- you know, it's a lie that you can't have a contact high. >> seth: right. >> i mean, especially around him, you know? but he -- he's so lovely, i love him! >> seth: yeah, he's a really sweet guy, a very smart guy, so much fun to be around. >> he's married to his high school sweetheart. >> seth: yeah. [ audience aws ] >> all the things you -- yeah, you wouldn't expect to know that. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> yeah, i loved him. >> seth: do you -- i've sort of -- over the course of your lifetime, have you noticed the change in the effects of weed? do you feel like it's gotten more severe? or i should say, more intense? >> yeah, well i think when i was younger, you just smoked it to
get wrecked. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] >> you know, and then hope that you didn't get paranoid. >> seth: uh-huh. >> you know, and see like monkeys doing cartwheels and stuff. and freaky stuff like that. but now i feel like it's a much more chemical, kind of like a chemist thing. >> seth: yeah. >> you know, because you can get sativa or you can get indica, which we call "inda-couch." >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> seth: does that mean that indica is sort of just like -- >> yeah. >> seth: okay, got it. >> kind of like that. >> seth: uh-huh. >> and actually, you know, i have like some aches and pains and coming through cancer twice and i -- i, you know, it really is helpful for that and it's much better than, you know, all the benzodiazepine, or that kind of stuff. >> seth: sure, was it -- did you find it sort of an instant game changer for you as far as dealing with the aches and pains? >> yes. >> seth: yeah, that's great. >> absolutely and in fact, we've had some retired nfl players on the show like jim mcmahon and kyle turley and ricky williams, you know, these guys who've just been major players and some of them have been suffering from,
you know, cte -- >> seth: sure. >> early onset alzheimer's and they've gotten off the psychotropics and are really promoting the cannabis. >> seth: that's good to hear, whatever it takes because obviously when you're going through stuff like that. and especially how intense the pain for anyone who goes through that nfl life. i'm happy to hear they're treating it any way they can. >> yeah, me too. >> seth: i want to ask you about this, you -- obviously have had many awards in your life, many honors bestowed upon you. i've heard, the highest for you was that you met the obamas. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. how'd it go? [ light laughter ] >> it didn't go very well. >> seth: what do you mean it didn't go well? >> well, i like to think of myself as a fairly articulate, erudite, intelligent woman. >> seth: sure. i think of you that way as well. [ laughter ] >> and i'm sure all of you do too. [ cheers and applause ] so, you know, they have the kennedy center honors every year. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> i was invited and you -- you get introduced to everybody, you know, who's being honored, then
you go in the next room and you get to say hello to the president and the first lady. and the cool thing was, i was sort of back in the line and i saw mrs. obama see me and she went -- [ clapping ] like that. >> seth: yeah. >> and i thought, "okay, i don't care about the oscar, i don't care about golden globes." you know, that to me was just the high point, right? >> seth: sure. >> and then there i was about to meet the president and he's very tall and i just -- wow. [ laughter ] >> seth: and that was -- that was within earshot -- >> wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, no right in front of him. >> seth: yeah, okay, got you. >> looking up, "wow!" yeah -- and not once, but twice. [ light laughter ] "wow!" and then he just kind of leaned down and said, "well, we really like your show." [ laughter ] you know? and i was like -- and my friend who was with me who's also incredibly erudite walked up and said, "is it really you?" [ laughter ] okay, i'm so embarrassed. and one of the reasons i wanted
to talk about it is if you guys are watching, i really am very smart and likeable and -- [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, yeah. >> 'cause i know! i'm sure they watch your show. >> seth: yeah. >> i'm sure they watch your show! >> seth: oh, i hope they watch our show! >> of course they do! >> seth: absolutely, yeah. >> of course they do. >> seth: i'm assuming like the rest of us, they're up -- they can't go to sleep, they're up all night. [ light laughter ] and i -- hopefully they just watch this end part about how you're erudite and wish you'd said something better and not the first half about how much you love weed. [ laughter and applause ] >> well, wait a minute. they, you know, they might be in support of that! >> seth: yeah. >> you don't know. >> seth: i bet they are! i bet now with this administration, everybody's smoking more weed. [ laughter and applause ] >> wow! >> seth: thank you so much for being here, it's always such a delight to see you. >> i love you! >> seth: kathy bates, everyone.

[ light laughter ] and cobie just says -- cobie just says, i'll never get used to hearing that voice coming from like -- >> seth: yeah. >> our -- our bedroom. >> seth: yeah. [ laughter ] >> and i said get used to it because i have big plans. [ laughter ] >> seth: you -- do you -- i feel like we're close enough in age to have had that, like -- the schwarzenegger movies were a canon of films that were really important. >> yes. everything. >> seth: what -- do you remember the first one you saw in the theater? >> in the theater i would say -- my first rated r movie in the theater was "terminator ii." >> seth: perfect. >> which blew my mind. >> seth: a perfect film. >> and i did for the next three or four years get what's called a step cut. >> seth: uh-huh. >> to get edward furlong's hair cut. >> seth: oh. >> because i was that consumed by that film. >> seth: done it. wait -- >> long, long -- >> seth: oh. >> sweeping bangs to one side. >> seth: gotcha. >> constantly walking up to atms jamming in like ralphs cards. >> seth: oh, okay, gotcha. a step cut. >> step cut. >> seth: that's fantastic.
>> big into the step cut. >> seth: and did you -- were you someone -- because for us it was every sleepover i feel like we rented -- >> yes. >> seth: two schwarzenegger movies. >> everything. >> seth: yeah. >> "predator," "commando" was huge. >> seth: yep. >> "commando" was maybe like the first one in my memory, in my mind. and it has -- there's something in the movie that i borrowed directly from that before i knew arnold would be in this dumb little movie. [ light laughter ] it's him breaking into this like weapons armament and he crashes a car through it and he's grabbing weapons and he unlocks a secret room and gets a four missile rocket launcher and he loads up. and then the cops arrest him and they take all the weapons away. [ laughter ] >> seth: they were really -- i do remember how funny i thought it was. "commando" particularly, because i feel like that was -- >> yeah. >> seth: one with everything had a catch phrase. >> best one liners. >> seth: every death. >> best one liners. >> seth: yeah. >> you said you're going to kill me last. oh, yeah, i lied. [ laughter and applause ] he's that good. that's all you have to write. >> seth: he was also -- you know, here that's sort of the
schwarzenegger you'd fig -- oh that could be an action movie. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> seth: you guys both look like action guys. >> yes. >> seth: and then, but you also he wears -- like he's very game in the film. you have him wearing disguises and i don't feel like i've seen that look before. >> little bit different. [ laughter ] little bit different for him. yeah. >> seth: yeah. >> and he was fully game. >> seth: yeah. >> the first -- the first thing we shot was him in booty shorts and a tankini. >> seth: wow. [ light laughter ] >> and he couldn't have been more comfortable and was like, how's everybody doing? [ laughter ] >> seth: do you have -- having spent time on the film, obviously you were very busy directing -- >> yeah. >> seth: and writing and starring. do -- are there things that looking back you say, oh, i wish i'd done this with arnold schwarzenegger. >> i got to do like three or four dinners which were the best. >> seth: yeah. >> and hearing stories of him being cast in "terminator" is the best. all i wanted to do was workout with him. >> seth: sure. >> i was like, please take me to the gym and call me a "girly man" or whatever. [ light laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> and that -- and then i was so busy that never happened. that's my biggest regret of the whole --
but what's great is that i assumed he'd have like a state-of-the-art gym and stuff. he just goes to the local y. we shot in vancouver, he's like, oh i've been there before, there's a y. [ laughter ] it's like $5 to get in, you can stay the whole day. [ laughter and applause ] >> seth: that's fantastic. >> he's the best. he is truly the best. >> seth: and what must be -- if you're at that y you must think, hey there's somebody over there who looks just like arnold schwarzenegger. you can't comprehend it's actually him. >> it's not him. it's an -- he must do birthday parties or something. >> seth: he's a look-a-like. >> yeah. >> seth: he's canada's look-a-like arnold schwarzenegger. [ laughter ] real briefly we -- i know we've talked about the l.a. rams before, you're very happy. >> yes. yes. >> seth: how do you feel? where are you at? >> we're doing better. we're 3-2 which is not great. we should have beat the redskins. we should have beat seattle. >> seth: uh-huh. >> but we're much better than last year. i feel like we could have a winning season. >> seth: and you are -- >> i'm not gonna say playoff, but i -- >> seth: but you're kind of one of the -- the few celebrity fans of the new rams. >> yeah. there's -- there's -- there's like a holy trinity of l.a. rams fans. >> seth: who are the three? so you. >> me. >> seth: yeah. >> ty burrell from "modern family." >> seth: okay, sure. >> and danny trejo. >> seth: yeah. [ light laughter ] what was danny trejo's movie?
it's like hatchet or something? >> yeah, "machete." >> seth: "machete." >> "machete." >> seth: "machete." >> "machete." he makes the jumbotron a lot more -- >> seth: i thought it was "hatchet." [ laughter ] you were one of the great impressionists of "snl." >> oh, thank you. >> seth: you did a few impressions -- >> yep. >> seth: of people that i did not know before you did them that could be done. brad pitt is an example. >> thanks. >> seth: but you also did eminem. >> yeah. >> seth: and that's a very hard impression to do just because of the verbal gymnastics that he actually does. >> yeah, yeah. no. i remember sitting next to andy and i did it and andy was like that's a decent eminem. which was like praise from caesar. >> seth: yeah. >> because andy -- andy is cynical about everything. >> seth: oh, yeah. the most -- >> good eminem. >> seth: the most andy's ever like anything is a little bit. >> yeah. [ light laughter ] eh, not bad. >> seth: yeah. good eminem. >> not bad. >> seth: yeah. >> no, it was so cool. >> seth: meanwhile he's -- [ speaking gibberish ] >> all muppet impressions. >> seth: yeah. he's like, that's a good eminem, but watch my swedish chef. [ laughter ] if you want to see a refined impression -- [ speaking gibberish ] [ laughter ] >> yeah, no -- the eminem video that came out is just -- is so
cool to see. >> seth: it was so cool to see. >> it was amazing. >> seth: did you -- watching it, were you thinking, oh, if i was on "snl" this week i would want to add to this? >> no, because he said everything. i mean i feel like he said everything that i was thinking and wanted out there except a couple of things. >> seth: yeah. >> and if i may -- >> seth: please. >> i just want to, if that's -- [ cheers and applause ] all right. trump! [ light laughter ] hold up. let me start over. [ laughter ] trump! he's so good. he just finds so many rhymes. >> seth: yeah, he was -- because was free styling. is that what you were doing? is that what you're doing now? >> yeah, well, i was just trying off the top of the dome. but there's -- >> seth: yeah. >> you'd find it in a dump. [ light laughter ] you -- trying to find a rhyme for mar-a-lago. >> seth: oh, yeah. >> just because i feel like he
didn't cover -- [ laughter ] >> seth: that's a tough one. >> the parrot from "aladdin's" iago. >> seth: okay, there you go. [ laughter ] >> wasting -- wasting money on mar-a-lago. he's a master. >> seth: yeah. >> he's a master. >> seth: i think it's a reminder -- >> it's mind-blowing. he's incredible. >> seth: is that he does and what you do are -- >> you get very -- [ applause ] really not at all the same. >> seth: thanks so much for being here, buddy. congrats on the movie. >> thanks for having me here. take it easy. >> seth: taran killam everybody.
